Looking forward to hearing what Rush says about this Monday. opcorn:
You obviously did not hear him correctly or understand the context of what he was referring to.Ken1961 said:I've heard Rush say he used "actors" on occasion to help get a point across etc.. I always assumed the others did too. It's kinda fun trying to pick them out from the regular callers.
He made it clear that he never used call-in actors, period. I could hardly believe that he'd use a staff member and then trust them absolutely not to betray him. He values his name more highly than that, I believe.Ken1961 said:Yes he did. However, you have to ask, would his own staff jump up and say..."I did it!" ?AEKDB said:Today he all but begged for someone to come public with evidence that they were paid by him or anybody affiliated with him or his show.Ken1961 said:It could be, if he's used "actors" at all, that they were members of his crew. He wouldn't have to hire them. They are already on payroll. He'd be technically telling the truth.bdee said:If he said that, then for his sake I hope it's the truth. If he has lied about this and there is evidence to the contrary, he's done as an entertainer.Phil1979 said:Rush has NEVER used actors and has NEVER paid anyone to be a caller to his radio show. Today, he went into great detail to make it crystal clear that is the case. This was the first thing he dealt with on his program.
Don't get me wrong. I like Rush. I enjoy his show. I agree with most of what he says, heck, maybe all of it. But, I don't know him personally, I can't vouch for his off radio/screen character, can you?
Momma always said, "Believe only half of what you see and none of what you read." She was talking about the newspapers and personal witnessing, but I think it applies here as well.
